Picture Perfect: Lanvin S/S 2015 Campaign

I can never get enough of Lanvin's campaigns because they are fun and the creative team constantly has refreshing concepts. For this season's campaign, it is all about the mother-daughter combination.

Violetta Sanchez & Luz Godin

Pat Cleveland & Anna Cleveland, Violetta Sanchez & Luz Godin, and Kirsten Owen & Billie Rose Owen are selected by the fashion house to be part of this campaign shot by Tim Walker. The images are fun, and really show the love between the daughters and mothers. As for the menswear, brothers Callum & Haydn Rockall and DJ duo Joshua Quinton and Andy Bradin are chosen to be the faces of this collection.

Now I am curious if there is a video campaign for this collection. If so, I am 100% looking forward to it!

Walk he Walk: Dior Homme F/W 2015 Menswear Collection

Dior Homme F/W 2015 runway show is probably the best presentation the Men Paris Fashion Week. From orchestra to the clothing, everything is simply perfect.

The show started with an orchestra playing live music and 8 models, dressed in black tuxedos, were sent down to the runway. These 8 ensembles were tailored perfectly and sent out a clear message of this collection: it's all about proportion and layering, with a touch of rebellious. Some of the outstanding pieces followed the tuxedo looks were the denim long coat, houndstooth sweater, pinstripe straw string dressed pants and the oversized vest. The silhouette was very sharp, and the colour palette suited the fall and winter season very well.

After looking at the collection, I believe a lot of people will try the oversized vest + regular blazer layering idea, because according to Kris Van Assche, this is going to be the trend of this coming season!


Pros:
- The first 8 tuxedo looks show Kris Van Assche is the master of tailoring, and he is not afraif to play with proportion this season.
- Sharp and sleek silhouette, and this collection is all about the technique of layering.
- The entire collection is very classic, with a dash of rebellious vibe.
- Love the shoes, they are very classy with a good modern twist.
- The denim pieces are great, especially the long coat.
- How can I not love the runway presentation with the orchestra right in the middle of the runway?

Cons:
- Would love to see the design team uses the yellow abstract print to create some accessories.

Eye Candies:
- The black tuxedos
- Denim long coat
- The shoes
- Grey long vest with yellow detailing
